Truviews of newPs for 7070 registry: trimes and half dimes

The original 'plan' was to transition my 7070 into a registry format by having graded my existing coins. As this project has unfolded, I haven't stayed entirely true to that goal. Some coins just didn't make financial sense to slab. Some others aren't going to be the best fit for where the set is going. While there are elements of truth in items 1&2 above for this trio, there is also an element 'these are too nice to pass up and will take the set to a new level' (both in eye appeal IMO, and premium paid :| ). Will I be able to keep up at this level? Time will tell, but thankfully I've committed to a very long timeline for this set.

PCGS62, just arrived this week from Stacks auction. Yes, it really is all that! Coin from raw set is actually in grading now. It has some super cool clashing and a colorful reverse, but just didn't compare.

PCGS58, super nice reverse. The raw piece in the album was pretty darn nice too. A crack out from a PCGS holder, a bit darker but with nice pronounced color. Maybe a case for maintaining duplicates?

PCGS55, coaxed away from board member @pocketchange. One in the album has much more subtle color and was purchases NGC AU something. Being honest with myself, I probably would have sought out a new piece for this hole, and am exceedingly pleased this one came along!

    Nice color on those, especially the bust half dime.

    Those are three very colorful coins. Each is pretty, though I am a bit partial toward the trime.

    I remember when @P0CKETCHANGE shared that 1854 back in December!

    Suhweeet. Beauties for sure.

    Very nice, I love all three of those! I really can't decide which one I like best.

    Those beautifully toned pieces remind me of the Benson Collection, sold by Goldberg’s in a series of sales in the early 2000’s.

    It was a very tough one to let go! I'm really happy it went to someone here that can appreciate it as much as (if not more than) I could—great looking set @ad4400 ...that 1832 has a stunning bullseye on the reverse!

    Nothing is as expensive as free money.
